    Isn't 900 MHz seriously prone to interference from other devices - like cordless phones?

    1) Aren't home phones dying off rather quickly? I think we need to consider this as technology Millenials will be using.

    2) I seem to recall many other devices, like a microwave, causing interference at that frequency.

    Do cordless phones still use those frequencies? I thought they moved to 2.4, and 5.8 GHz. 

    Edit: it seems that many still use 900 MHz to transmit from phone to base to conserve energy.

    I’m still confused why they made the AirPort Extreme into an Apple TV shape. What was wrong with the “hey, it’s plugged into the wall AND it’s a router!” concept? That was great, and I never even wanted one or had any use for it. Honestly, it feels like it was only done to save money on production costs. “We have this Apple TV mold already; let’s just make more of them.”

    Thanks for doing the research I should have done.  Either way, I think we can assume this issues has been considered by the 'HaLow' engineers.
